"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Aoun Vows to 'Eradicate Corruption', Says Won't Allow Politicians to Violate Constitution- Naharnet

President Michel Aoun pledged Sunday that “corruption will be eradicated” during his presidential tenure, stressing that he will not allow any politician to violate the constitution as part of his vision for a “strong State.”
“Reaching the presidency is not our goal and the goal is to build a country that is strong through its national unity,” Aoun said before popular delegations that flocked to the Baabda Palace from all regions to congratulate him on his election, in scenes reminiscing the 1988-90 era when Aoun was in the palace as the head of a military government.
“A strong State is one built upon a constitution respected by all politicians and no one will be able to violate the constitution from now on,” Aoun promised.
“Today, we can stand proudly and defiantly before all people and countries because we have created our national unity and we will now begin the second journey, which is building the country,” the president said.
